In the new Community environment, the text editor allows you to include
nicely formatted code fragments in the integrated rich editor, but they
are displayed without any color in the actual post. Would be nice if the
syntax colouring from the editor ...
With IFC export, the translator provides the option to split elements
into parts. I'm trying to export a door with its parts, but it remains a
single object upon export. Does this setting also require a specific
setup of the GDL code to distinguish b...
With the IFC Mapping Rules (in Map IFC Properties for Export), you can
only map simple, singular values, but not lists. Alas, within IFC most
Pset_*Common PropertySets have the "Status" property which expresses the
different status possibilities (NEW...
When exporting a 2D symbolic object to IFC4 MVD Reference View, I get an
error that the object is missing geometry in the Session Report: "The
following elements could not be exported due to missing geometry:

I was wondering which elements are actually capable of receiving Base
Quantities upon IFC export? E.g. a column exported as IfcColumn has Base
Quantities, but when classified as IfcPile, the same column does not
carry Base Quantities.
Define "collaboration". In a recent large project, while primary
exchange was IFC-based, the team using Archicad exported an RVT file as
well, which seemed to be more convenient for one of the other teams. But
that was for "coordination" purposes. Fo...
I've had the experience that the IFC import in Revit is often falling
back to Generic Models whenever anything in Archicad makes more complex
geometric connections. Solid Element Operations don't translate that
well, so the geometry is often flattene...
In IFC, the length of a wall is defined as: Total nominal length of the
wall along the wall center line (even if different to the wall path).
Unfortunately there are some restrictions on what Archicad can deliver
when dividing the element into its constituent parts. Beware: the "name"
you see is an auto-generated naming convention from Solibri (IFC Entity
+ Storey Number + Object Number) a...
